Find your Pulse!

Connecting with our breath, listening to our heartbeat, and paying attention to how we feel in our body when we are alone is the perfect place to learn how to slow down. This mediation will teach you to control your reactions to any situation and can bring sweetness and one-pointedness to the most outrageously scattered mind. This is important because when we are tired, we are more easily triggered or tent to react faster to things that we wouldn't if we were exhausted.

Practice it in the morning, before bedtime, in the shower, or the subway. Practice it all day every day if you can. If you need a little reminder here is a beautiful one!

 


Dive Deep

Music: Be silent with your breath.

Time: Practice this meditation for 3, 11, or 31 minutes. 

Eyes: Gently closed

Breath: Begin long, deep breathing.

Pose:

  • Sit comfortably with a straight spine.
  • With the four fingers of the right hand, feel the pulse on the left wrist.
  • Place the fingers in a straight line, lightly, so that you can feel the pulse in each fingertip.
  • Your hands can rest on your lap. 
  • If you want to do it before bed, lay down, place your hands on your heart or navel to feel your heartbeat. You may prefer to feel your pulse in another part of your body. That is fine too.

I hope this finds you well, and you give yourself this gift.

 

xoxo, Maria
